The Minnesota Association for Environmental Educators is hosting a day of community conservation at Hartley Nature Center. The event, Great Lakes Bioblitz, is an event which pairs community members and naturalists to find and record as many plant and animal species as possible in a specific area, in a set amount of time. Join MAEE and HNC for coffee and cookies, visit learning stations about birds, vernal pools, and trees, and go outside to make observations of living wild things as part of the event.
The Great Lakes Bioblitz at HNC is part of a month-long Great Lakes Bioblitz project on iNaturalist. Participants can join the project on iNaturalist and make observations anywhere in the state of Minnesota from April 22nd to May 20th. More information at https://minnesotaee.org/
